The Disney Princess Ultimate Dream Castle by Mattel is a kid’s dreamland, featuring fairytale-themed rooms for many of their favorite princesses.

Forget a staircase…the dolls can just jump onto Rapunzel’s hair and spin their way from the third story to the ground floor.

And when you download the virtual Magic Mirror app that comes free with the castle to any iOS device, you will be able to see extra features like the nightly fireworks display in front of the castle, just like you find at the Magic Kingdom in Disney World. Or, you’ll watch fish play in the tub in Ariel’s special space.

But even without the app, children will find hours of fun with surprises in each room.

The dining area has a table complete with spinning candles, just like in Beauty and the Beast.

Sleeping Beauty has a bedroom, Cinderella has a special chair and helpful mouse figurine, and Snow White has her special mirror.

Rapunzel’s hair is the coolest feature to me, but my daughter seems to prefer the play area at the top of the castle where all of the princesses can play together.

The castle can be found at major toy store and online at amazon.com.
